Former sailor sentenced for transporting stolen vehicles

NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – A former Navy sailor has been sentenced to 18 months in prison in a case involving the transporting of stolen vehicles, Friday.

According to court documents, in May of 2015, Genesis Calvin Moore, 25, of Hampton stole a trailer full of fitness equipment from Naval Station Norfolk. Then in June of 2015, Moore stole a freightliner truck that was assigned to the USS Harry S. Truman aircraft carrier. Moore used the stolen freightliner truck to transport two stolen Bobcat construction vehicles to Georgia, where he attempted to sell them via Craigslist.

Moore was apprehended by law enforcement in Georgia before he could complete the sale of the Bobcats. One of the Bobcats was returned to its owner, and a month later Moore stole the same Bobcat construction vehicle and attempted to sell it via Craigslist a second time.

Moore pleaded guilty on July 15. He was also ordered to pay over $80,000 in restitution to the U.S. Navy.
